I think we can all agree that FP Jones was a little rough around the edges in the beginning of Riverdale -- drunk, unemployed, and really just not seeming to care -- but there's no denying how he's progressed throughout the seasons. I can easily say that FP is not only my favorite character, but he's all around the best character. Here's why:

*disclaimer -- spoilers ahead*

He's Done Bad Things, But Only Out Of Protection

Yes, yes, I know what you're all thinking: "But FP has done some really bad things!!" Well, for one: who hasn't done bad things in this show? Tell me. For two: everything bad he's done, he did it to protect someone else, which is at least a little bit admirable. For example, FP took the blame of killing Jason Blossom to protect his son Jughead even though it landed him in jail. Also, when he shot Hiram Lodge, he was only doing it out of revenge for Hiram's plot almost killing Jughead. While that's not a great reason, I can at least see where he was coming from. In any case, he's just trying his best, even if he makes some mistakes sometimes.

Kept The Peace As Leader Of The Serpents

When FP was the leader of the Southside Serpents, he kept the peace between the North and South sides so that there wouldn't be bloodshed. Despite all the issues with drugs and gang violence, he was always a peacemaker. Even after he retires from the Serpents at the end of the second season, he continues to help the Serpents by giving Jughead advice on how to keep the peace as much as possible so he can also be a great leader.

Best Sheriff The Town Has Had For A While

Of course, Sheriff Keller was a really good sheriff for the town, but FP speaks for both the Northside and the Southside equally, which made him an awesome asset to the Riverdale police department. Yes, he had Hermione whispering in his ear some of the time, but he did his best to stay impartial and speak for the people.

At The End Of The Day, He Would Do Anything For His Family

FP proves time and time again that he would do whatever it takes to keep Jughead safe, but what about the rest of his family? In Season Three we really get to see how much FP cares about his family (even if him and his wife are separated). When Jughead's mom comes back into FP and Jughead's life in Season Three, FP falls for her all over again. She even tells Jughead that it would break his heart to know what kind of person she truly is. She knows he has a big heart, and at the end of the day she's not afraid to use that to her advantage. Further, he gets shot trying to rescue Jellybean in a robbery attempt of Pops, despite being Sheriff of the town. No matter what the situation, FP is definitely one to do just about anything for his family, which is more than can be said for some of the other people in this show.

Finally, Just Look At Him

Alright, I admit that this one is a bit more superficial than the rest, but FP easily takes the cake of best Riverdale character when you combine his huge heart with his more-than-fine looks. I mean, in that Sheriff's uniform? Yes sir!

I could go on and on about why FP Jones is so great, but these specific five reasons (I think) are plenty to prove why FP is the best Riverdale character. He's grown so much throughout the three seasons Riverdale has had so far, and I can't wait to see what he's like in the new season.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
